Ah, crud!

Bugger me! I was a little lax with my filter maintenance (usually do my canister once a month, was a couple of weeks late this time) and I discovered that a kuhli loach had found it's way into it, despite my precautions. It didn't make it. Now, I am having issues with fungus and bacteria! I've lost 2 of my platinum angels. :(. So far I've been doing 50% water changes every 2 days and just generally keeping things as clean as possible. I want to try to avoid meds because here in Australia we seem to be limited as to what we can get. :(. No maracyn for us! Argh!

I haven't lost a fish to something like this for years. This is so depressing! I've had this one tank up and running for almost 4 years without issue and just cause I didn't get around to it, I've lost some of my babies. SO, don't EVER get lax with your maintenance! You will pay dearly for it.

sadly when we relax on our passion/hobby (pending what your spouse says... lol)... something will go wrong to re-enforce the fact we have to check on it frequently.
